|Immersion Corporation, the leader in touch feedback technology development and licensing, today announced it is seeking termination of the International Trade Commission’s investigation of HTC Corporation for infringement of certain of Immersion’s patents and instead will ask for the stay of its lawsuit in the U.S. District Court to be lifted, so that Immersion may prosecute its claim against HTC for damages immediately.|
The ITC action was originally scheduled for final determination on October 28, 2013, after which the only remedy available to Immersion is an exclusion order against HTC preventing the importation of infringing devices into the United States. By contrast, the remedy available in U.S. District Court includes damages, attorneys’ fees, and potentially injunctive relief.
“Given HTC’s recent performance in the mobile market, we believe an exclusion order preventing HTC from importing infringing devices would no longer be an impactful win, and we are turning our energies to seeking damages for past and ongoing shipments of infringing devices,” said Immersion CEO Victor Viegas. “Due to this change in forum, we anticipate our legal expenses for 2013 will be lower than forecasted and our potential recovery of damages will accelerate by at least six months,” concluded Mr. Viegas.

| Eastman Kodak Company has completed a series of agreements that successfully monetizes its digital imaging patents.|
The proposed transaction, which achieves one of Kodak’s key restructuring objectives, follows other recent major accomplishments that include an agreement for interim and exit financing for the company’s emergence from its Chapter 11 restructuring, and resolution of U.S. retiree non-pension benefits liabilities. Kodak’s monetization of IP assets further builds on its momentum toward a successful emergence in the first half of 2013.
Under the agreements, Kodak will receive approximately $525 million, a portion of which will be paid by 12 intellectual property licensees organized by Intellectual Ventures and RPX Corporation, with each licensee receiving rights with respect to the digital imaging patent portfolio and certain other Kodak patents. Another portion will be paid by Intellectual Ventures, which is acquiring the digital imaging patent portfolio subject to these new licenses, as well as previously existing licenses.
“This monetization of patents is another major milestone toward successful emergence,” Antonio M. Perez, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said. “Our progress has accelerated over the past several weeks as we prepare to emerge as a strong, sustainable company. This proposed transaction enables Kodak to repay a substantial amount of our initial DIP loan, satisfy a key condition for our new financing facility, and position our Commercial Imaging business for further growth and success.”

There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to mobile operating systems (OS) and the announcement by Microsoft of Windows Phone 8 will soon give customers another choice when shopping for a new Verizon Wireless smartphone.
This new OS brings new features to explore and new ways to further personalize your smartphone. Windows Phone 8 will debut on a number of new smartphones, which means you never need to relearn the OS when moving from one smartphone to another.
The Start screen is always the most personal screen and Live Tiles on Windows Phone 8 makes that personalization possible. Live Tiles let you create a Start screen that’s exactly right for you by letting you not only pin apps but also people, bookmarks and more all on one screen to view at a glance. The Live Tiles and Apps pinned on the Start screen animate and update as notifications come in so you see which apps are calling for your attention. The tunes that you rock out to and the games that keep you busy go where you go with Xbox Music and Xbox Games. All of this together is what makes the phone, you.

|HTC Corporation, a global leader in mobile innovation and design, today unveiled the new HTC One S - elegantly styled with an ultra-slim 7.8mm metal unibody, for people who want a powerful smartphone that pushes the boundaries of mobile phone design.|
Engineered with advanced design
HTC One S features two innovative new finishes, used for the first time ever in mobile phone design. The first, an ultra-matte black ceramic surface, is the result of a microarc oxidation process originally developed for use in satellites. It transforms the surface of the metal unibody into a super-dense crystalline structure that is four times harder than anodised aluminum, resisting the bumps and scrapes of everyday use to leave the HTC One S looking pristine. The second takes traditional anodisation to a new level, with a patented HTC process that creates a subtle and sophisticated light-to-dark gradient fade through the aluminum.
Powerful, durable performance
A 1.7GHz dual-core CPUs powers an ultra-responsive interface with rich graphics that come to life on the 4.3 inch bright Super AMOLED screen. Crafted from contoured Corning(TM) Gorilla Glass, which flows over the edges of the phone, the durable screen has optical lamination offering wide viewing angles to make reviewing pictures and videos easy.
Versatile user experience
HTC One S blends Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with HTC Sense(TM) 4, the new version of HTC's acclaimed user experience. HTC Sense(TM) 4 features new camera capabilities, enabling users to shoot outstanding pictures in the blink of an eye. Beats Audio(TM) technology is also integrated more deeply throughout all multimedia features of the phone, to deliver a more premium mobile experience.
